    PVP in this game is dead. You don't have a chance against all these whales running around. The major part of players doing PVP are above 600GS. This is ridiculous.

    There are too much P2W players melting dozens of costumes to spam protected PEN attempts until it succeed. Just look at the enhancement system chat. Same for costumes sellers, selling 35 costumes per week to earn 7 billions silvers. That's why the world chat is filled with "WTB ANY PEN" announcements..

    T2+ node wars, Velia 4 RBF and Arsha channel are filled with p2w whales. If you have full TET gear , you can't do ****. You'll not be able to kill anyone ( cuz they have caphrased PEN armors ) and you'll get melted ( cuz they have 290AP+ ).

    Costumes melting needs to be deleted. And the 35 costumes per week that can be registered at the market needs to be reverted to 5 like before.

    PVP is pointless is you're not a whale yourself.

    BDO became the new ArchAge zzz

    Heh, that's funny.

    You must have JUST now got to around 560 GS, or 261 +ap.....
    Its been this way for quite awhile now.

    Remember its a marathon, you chose to run on foot, while everyone else brought a car.

    Get everyone else attitude...assume mmo games arnt meant for competition, but instead I guess chat trolling, and pretending everyone else are AI's masquerading as NPC's for their single player experience.

    I'm still awaiting the re-balance so i can enter the competition again...Iv been putting in quite a bit of overtime at work, so I think ill be able to catchup pretty quick once that happens.

    Skill and composition is still and even more involved. Since protection Area dont work.

    Its a better experience and learning content before get the 279 AP require for T2+-Siege.

    When anyway its the highest number 280AP+ of Archer/Witch that win T2+.


    In T1 more classe have thier chance. and in easy/medium its not a oneshot fest.

    That why in NA There are some siege level guilds in T1.

    alot of good fight, when inj compare actualy siege in NA is 100% finish in 5 min with pure Trina axe job. Nobody fight. Zero competition.

    Pvp games tend to have a lot of whales but let's face it if monetary transactions are involved whales will be there lul.

    People complain about whales.
    Folks still buying things off the Pearl Shop.

    I dont know what to tell ya.

    NA/EU claim to hate P2W and yet,
    everyone seems to complain with their wallets open still swiping.

    I dont know what to tell ya.

    Please don't talk about skill when referring to BDO. It's all about gear. Skill isn't hard to acquire. There are an infinite source of skill based play that anyone can achieve. After you learn those staples, you don't need to be a doctor of philosophy to play.

    In the end, It's all down to gear you have, because no amount of skill will get you out of that CC and then getting melted so quick, you would think you got divided by zero.

    I know very little about PvP but that does not stop my RNG carried butt from stomping on far better skilled people and I don't even know how flagging works. That says much about BDO PvP being skill based.

    Seems you don't understand one thing.

    Normal people buy some stuff in the cash-shop if they like the game. They pay for convenience ( like weight , inventory , artisants , campsite , etc.. ) , or cosmetics.
    WHALES buy COSTUMES to SELL OR MELT , for the only purpose of having the best gear.

    See the difference.

    It's not Kakao fault , i remember they were upset when PA asked them to introduce costume melting ( with Valk's Cry ). Kakao refused but PA to threaten them , so Kakao had to accept if they wanted to keep friendly relationship with the developers.

    Not true at all. One day I was wearing full DP setup while crushing items outside of town. (Not lifeskill gear, just breaking down weapons). When Suddenly I was attacked!

    This is where my amazing skill came into play. The opponent was doing no damage at all. Sure some may say he had a low AP and I was full DR, but I believe it was my amazing talent that reduced that damage not just a churned out calculation by a computer.

    I proceeded to obliterate them, again not due to my AP, but my scandalous timing and ability. If it wasn't for my immense skill I certainly would have only done 1/8 the damage.

    The only thing I took away from the fight was, damn I'm good at this game.

    P2W and P2C are the same thing. One is an action one is an effect, one just sounds better.

    400euros is a huge amount for me, yep.
    So to me, you're a part of theses "whales".

    But hey, after spamming for weeks the french section looks like you want to spam the english section, with the same things other and other again. And people will still keep telling you the same things : Majority of pvp players are full TET with caphras. Lots of guild have a 261gs requirement.

    Generally yes, but there are few exceptions. A game without PVP for example or lacking competitive aspects like Ownership, Siege, Battlefield.
